Energy State Minister H.H.A.D.I. Anuruddha said that Sri Lanka is committed to reach the target of 70 percent of electricity generation through renewable energy sources by 2030 and net carbon neutrality by 2050.

He said so addressing the the Third Asian and Pacific Energy Forum recently held at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) in Bangkok, Thailand.

The State Minister highlighted the importance of transiting fossil-based fuel to renewable energy sources to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change and as the invariable energy is interlinked with the environmental, social and geo-political paradigm, all the regional countries should pay attention to work collectively to ensure security in the region and between regions. At the third Asian and Pacific Energy Forum, the State Minister was elected as one of the vice chairs. He was also a panel member at the panel discussion on building a secure, sustainable, and interconnected energy future for Asia and the Pacific.

On the sidelines of the forum, the State Minister held bilateral discussions with the Deputy Energy Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Mochalnikov. He also had discussions with the Thai investors and invited them to invest in the renewable energy sector in Sri Lanka.

The delegation comprised of Ambassador of Sri Lanka and Permanent Representative to UNESCAP, C. A. Chaminda I. Colonne, First Secretary/Deputy Permanent Representative to UNESCAP A. W. S Samanmali, First Secretary (Commercial)/Deputy Permanent Representative to UNESCAP Vireshika Bandara and Private Secretary to Power and Energy State Minister Eng. S. K. Liyanage.
